Penarol to Win with Handicap (-1)
Even though the home team has only lost once so far in the season, they are still six points away from the top since they’ve drawn too many times. Now they are playing against a newly-promoted team and that could be a great chance for them to get the much-needed win. While Cerrito is playing well, Penarol is the much better team and we expect to see a convincing win for the home team.
Under 2.5 Total Goals
While we seen many goals in the past when these two clubs meet (four of their last five matches have gone over 2.5 total goals), we don’t expect this to happen now. The reason lies in the fact that both teams average 2.00 goals per game this season in Apertura, which is among the lowest averages in the league.
Correct Score 2-0
Since we expect the home team to win by at least two goals and we also don’t expect to see many goals in the game, we feel that taking a punt on the 2-0 correct score might be worth a small bet. The odds on the correct score betting market are always great and our gut feeling is telling us that this game could end 2-0, so we’ll definitely try this.
Penarol vs Cerrito preview: Can Penarol improve their form and standings?
While the home team is not in the best form for their standards, the guests are still behind in the standings. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look at the teams:
Even though Penarol has lost only once in the Uruguayan Apertura this season, they are currently in the 6th place only, which is not the place where the club of their reputation wants to be. After nine rounds, Penarol has won three times, along with five draws and one loss, so they are now six points behind Nacional, who is sitting at the top of the table.
The newly-promoted team is doing well in the Apertura this season since they are only three points behind their upcoming opponent, Penarol. Cerrito has three wins, two draws, and four losses in their first nine games in the league and they are occupying the 9th spot in the standings right now. However, they’ve lost the last two games in a row and they’ll be looking to break the streak.
